    Good tool for its price

    posted by biloleva on 06/21/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    For its price it is the best. I use it sometimes when soldering something or making bijou with cooper wire and some rocks. The build quality is not so bad. It is very usefull if you need something like that.
    Cons:
    It twists and slides a little on the table, but i think it is easily fixed with a little of rubber stripe and glue
